Why I love what I do
It's very rare to find yourself in a role where you can guide, support and often challenge powerful leaders through a difficult journey that produces the type of tangible result we all end up seeing as consumers in the world. I love that I get to partner with these impressive businesses and people to tackle the thorniest commercial challenges and ultimately crack them with disruptive, game changing solutions, all while having fun.
A business result I'm proud of
I was a member of a team of 8 that used an innovative approach to revolutionise a stagnant industry. Ultimately we kicked off an entirely new way of service delivery that allowed us to build a global business of 400+ employees across 3 continents within 5 years, and seed what is now a billion dollar industry that improves the lives of millions of patients across North America.
A business reinvention I admire
For me this has to be Amazon. Their ability to flex, adapt and evolve their business to meet the current market needs, irrespective of its perceived impact on 'business as usual', is energising and refreshing. Whether that was the introduction of the Kindle, which spelt the end of its core book sales but completely transformed their brand and the role they could play in consumers lives, or using their platform to become the world's biggest consumer retailer.
